SQUARE POS UPDATE 3/18/2020
To our Square community:
We’re all facing unique challenges right now, and for business owners, the stakes are particularly high. We want to offer support and help in the ways we can.
We are refunding all software subscription fees for the month of March for existing sellers who currently use Square Appointments, Retail, Restaurants, Loyalty, Team Management, Payroll, Marketing, and Square Online Store. Square will manage the process for you—there’s no need to do anything. Additional product updates are also in the works. You can use our just released curbside pickup option through Square Online Store, and we will release a local delivery feature this week. We are also waiving curbside pickup and delivery fees for the next three months. Be sure to bookmark this PAGE for the latest information and tools to support you and your business.

The Department of Community and Economic Development has a resource account for businesses to reach out to directly with questions and concerns about operations. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, business, contact information, and concern, and someone will be in contact to assist you.
Employees affected by a business closure, reduction in hours, or a medically or government directed quarantine or isolation should be encouraged to file for unemployment compensation (UC) benefits if no other compensation, such as paid leave, is available to them.
Employees should be aware that they cannot receive both UC benefits and paid leave, as it may result in an "overpayment" that requires them to return benefits. READ MORE HERE
